Often described as the most beautiful country in South America, Colombia has come a long way since the dark days of Pablo Escobar. More and more travellers are discovering Colombia’s winning blend of breathtaking scenery, beautiful towns and pristine Caribbean coastline, along with the welcoming people who are passionate about showing you how much their country has to offer.
Colombia’s star attraction is the picture-perfect colonial town of Cartagena, situated on the sultry Caribbean coast, and the unspoilt islands just offshore are becoming increasingly fashionable. Bogotá and Medellín are among the most exciting up-and-coming cities in Latin America, while towns like Popayán and Barichara have colonial good looks to rival anywhere on the continent. But it’s Colombia’s vast and often impenetrable interior that really defines this country, from highland coffee fincas and dense Amazonian jungle to snow-capped mountain peaks. This epic landscape sustains an incredibly diverse array of wildlife, including more bird species than any other country on the planet.
Colombia is currently one of South America’s most exciting destinations, with a rich cultural heritage, many areas of outstanding natural beauty and a notoriously friendly and welcoming population.
